The Tomah High School boys hockey team dropped to 0-4-0 with losses last week to La Crosse Aquinas/Holmen and West Salem.
The Timberwolves dropped a 6-0 Mississippi Valley Conference decision Tuesday to Aquinas/Holmen at Tomah Ice Center. All six of Aquinas/Holmen’s goals came in the first 27 minutes of the contest. Three of the goals came on power plays. Tomah goaltender Sam Peterson made 36 saves. The Timberwolves committed the game’s first seven penalties, including a pair of five-minute boarding calls in the second period.
Tomah lost at West Salem 5-2 Thursday, and penalties were again a problem. West Salem scored its third goal on a penalty shot, and the Timberwolves had to absorb a 10-minute misconduct for checking from behind. The Timberwolves got on the scoreboard with goals from Jordan Smith and Boone Mathison.
The Timberwolves travel to La Crosse Central/La Crosse Logan Tuesday for an MVC match return home Thursday to host nonconference rival Viroqua starting at 7 p.m. at Tpmah Ice Center.
